Comcast Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program Recognizes Pennsylvania Students for their Academic Achievement and Community Service
HARRISBURG, Pa., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Comcast Foundation, founded in 1999 to provide charitable support to its local communities and to empower and enrich lives, is awarding $187,000 in scholarships to 178 Pennsylvania high school seniors through its annual Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program. One of the Comcast Foundation's signature community investment initiatives, the program recognizes students' leadership skills, academic achievement and commitment to community service.
Comcast, joined by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett and other government officials, recognized the students at a special event held Tuesday at the State Museum of Pennsylvania. All of the 2014 Pennsylvania Leaders and Achievers recipients received $1,000 scholarships, except for Lexus Allen of Scitech High School in Harrisburg, who was awarded a $10,000 Comcast Founder's Scholarship – instituted in honor of Ralph J. Roberts, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Comcast Corporation. After a prize drawing, 10 students also received netbooks for use at college.
"Each of these students has demonstrated they are among the best and brightest that Pennsylvania has to offer," said Governor Corbett. "They are not only leaders academically, but have shown a commitment to their communities through their service and dedication. Susan and I commend them for their achievements, as well as the Comcast Foundation for offering this scholarship program to deserving students statewide."
The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides $1,000 scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, are catalysts for positive change in their communities, are involved in their schools, and serve as models for their fellow students. The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.
This year, 52 percent of the Leaders & Achievers winners nationally come from diverse backgrounds, including 18 percent African American, 14 percent Hispanic, 12 percent Asian and 4.5 percent multiracial. Since the inception of the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Program in 2000, more than $21.6 million in scholarships has been awarded to approximately 21,000 deserving students to use toward their pursuit of a higher education.
"Comcast recognizes the importance of fostering leadership and excellence in the next generation," said Jim Samaha, regional senior vice president for Comcast. "These students are role models in their communities and at their schools. We commend them for their exceptional achievements, and wish them the very best in their future endeavors."
